    yeah.... it seems it is gonna work in my favor being that My tractor does not lift very high so its lower stance makes loading it a little easier... only thing that I see as a possible problem with the low stance is if i decide to use it for snow removal is it not going to have enough ground clearance..., anyone have any experience with these?

    Nice truck. I think it would push a lot of snow for you. Go for it.

    Its a big truck as you know so plowing driveways is OUT OF THE QUESTION!
    But if you plows commercial stuff or subs it would be great just go forward as much as you can

    My buddie set one of those up with a plow. He put bigger springs up front.

    yeah I normally dont mess with doing driveways anyway.... but if i did, i have a few pickups... more than likely would be used at wal-marts and other large commercial properties... just wondering if anyone had set up this truck with a plow and what size.... I have seen the regular 4700's with plows but was wondering about the lo-pro

    I am looking at a similar one. Do you mind me asking what you had to give for it?

    congrats on the deal! post up some bigger pics.

    the only thing i can see being an issue while plowing, is the huge dump bed on the back really restricting visibility. they wont win any races but the older internationals are reliable.
